#SXSW: “EXTRA ORDINARY” REVIEW
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
Rose (Maeve Higgins) has a supernatural gift, a gift she fears. Word has gotten around her rural Irish neighbourhood and when a feared father (Barry Ward) ask for her help, she must overcome her fear and help save his daughter.
This Film is a perfectly mixed bag of genres that makes for one of the most unique film-going experiences at SXSW this year. Moments of uncontrollable laughter turns to moments of shock. All while showcasing some of the most deadpan comedic writing executed perfectly by Higgins, Ward and the always funny Will Forte.
Extra Ordinary screens at SXSW on March 10 at 5:30 PM at Stateside, March 11 at 1:45 PM at Alamo Lamar A, March 14 at 7:45 PM at Alamo Lamar A, and March 15 at 8 PM at ZACH Theatre.
